Over 300 Nimbaians Join CDC

first_imgSupt. Dorr Cooper (2nd from right) signs a CDC membership form, as others look on. Over 300 local government officials, serving in Nimba County Administration, headed by Superintendent David Dorr Cooper, on Saturday, October 6, renounced their memberships with their respective previous political parties, and crossed over to the ruling Coalition for Democracy Change (CDC).The occasion, which was observed by officials of the CDC, including its Chairman Molubah Morlu, began with a parade through the main street of Ganta to the Wuo Tarpiah Memorial Hall on the outskirts of Ganta, where Supt. Cooper read the cross-over statement.Supt. Cooper paid tribute to Senator Prince Y. Johnson as a ‘godfather’ of the Nimba body politic, seeking for his help to make the party succeed during its first six years.“We make a guarantee and sustain our decision to join the CDC so as to win the 2020, and 2023, senatorial and general presidential elections,” Supt. Cooper said.Supt. Cooper, who has been described as the second most popular person in the county next to Senator Johnson, is believed to be among those expressing interest to contest in the 2020 senatorial election.Though he did not make any statement regarding his political ambition, he said he was joining the CDC to ensure a victory in 2020, but could not explain what political currency he would leverage apart from promising good road networks.Among the new CDC partisans were members and supporters of the former ruling Unity Party, who attendees at the occasion described as “gravy seekers”.The chief elder of Nimba, Peter Barlon, along with other chiefs, presented kola nuts to the CDC Chair, and pledged their flinching support to the government of President George Weah.Barlon and colleagues were among those whose names and signatures were affixed on the statement of support to the CDC. However, he denied claims that the chiefs were politicians, adding, “we (chiefs) support any power that be, whether it the CDC or not.”“We the chiefs are not politicians, we are the owners of the country, so we support any government as advisors,” he said.Mr. Morlu has meanwhile welcomed the new CDCians as bonafide partisans with all rights and privileges to participate in any CDC activities to move the country forward.Morlu said the CDC does not discriminate, but accepts anyone, whether educated, farmer, wheelbarrow pushers, etc. He said that the CDC has taken people from nowhere and made them senators and representatives.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Neymar leaving hospital to begin rehab

first_imgThe operation was declared a complete success.Now the question is whether the 26-year-old can catch any of PSG’s remaining season, and even what kind of shape he’ll be in at the start of Brazil’s World Cup campaign in Russia this June.“The recovery time will depend on the player’s evolution. In six weeks we will make a new evaluation,” Lasmar said after performing the operation.Gerard Saillant, the French doctor representing PSG at the hospital, told journalists that the timing of Neymar’s return to full training could only be given at the six-week mark.“It is absolutely impossible to give you the slightest detail before those six weeks,” he said.On Thursday, Lasmar said the star player — whose transfer from Barcelona cost PSG a record 222 million euros ($264 million) last August — would need at least two and a half months, maybe three, to return.This would put him uncomfortably close to the start of the World Cup on June 14, including missing two friendly warm-up games.– Tensions denied –After his one hour and 15 minute operation, Neymar spent his Saturday afternoon in a hospital bed watching live TV coverage of PSG’s Ligue 1 game against Troyes, Saillant said.PSG won 2-0, but Neymar’s absence will be keenly felt during Tuesday’s Champions League showdown against Real Madrid.The striker has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for the club — a prolific tally that came to a halt February 25 when he broke his foot during a 3-0 drubbing of Marseille.Amid reports of tensions between PSG and Brazil’s footballing authorities over Neymar’s medical treatment, PSG insisted that it would be in charge of his recuperation.“The post-operation rehabilitation will begin immediately under the control of the club’s physiotherapist,” PSG said in a statement on their website.Earlier, Paris newspaper L’Equipe reported that PSG believe Lasmar lied about Neymar’s condition.The report said that Neymar was initially found to have suffered a minor fracture at the Marseille game and that PSG were shocked when Lasmar declared it was a serious break requiring longer than expected recuperation time.However, doctors stressed Saturday that there was no friction between PSG and Brazil’s federation, the CBF.“Contrary to what might have been written or said…, decisions already taken and those to come have had the complete agreement of Neymar of course, and of his family, all the staff at PSG, the medical staff, the organization and management of PSG, and the representatives of the CBF,” Saillant said.“There is absolutely no split, despite what was written.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Neymar is helped to his feet by Adrien Rabiot during PSG’s win over Marseille on Sunday, in which he suffered a twisted ankle and a hairline metatarsal fracture © AFP/File / GERARD JULIENBELO HORIZONTE, Brazil, Mar 4 – Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar was to leave hospital Sunday after a successful operation on his broken foot, but it will be six weeks before doctors know when the world’s most expensive player can train again.Neymar was due to be discharged early in the morning from the Mater Dei hospital in Belo Horizonte, 24 hours after surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot.last_img read more

From then, Mukangula, Salim Abdallah and Victor Majid scored for AFC while Ongoma, George Omondi, Oliver Rutto and Enosh Ochieng scored for Ulinzi to tie the scores at 4-4 after the first five.It went to sudden death and Whyvonne Isuza scored for AFC before Hamissi saw his kick saved by Owade.The first half didn’t provide much of action in the opening 45, the scorching mid-morning sun not making it easier for any of the two sides.In the second half though, the action pumped up with AFC having the opening chance with Edward Seda first taking a shot from range while a minute later he had a header at point blank go inches over.On the other end, Nandwa threatened also with a header from the edge of the box but it went inches over the bar.The soldiers broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute from a controversial penalty after Nandwa was brought down inside the box by Oduro who seemed to have won the ball in a 50-50 challenge.But Ingwe equalized less than 10 minutes later when Mukangula struck a low shot from the edge of the box, going through a forest of legs before landing in the bottom left of Saruni’s goal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000AFC Leopards players celebrate Eugene Mukangula’s equalizer during the FKF Shield third and fourth play off at the Kasarani Stadium on October 20, 2018.

President helps launch pavilion for Air Force One

first_imgSIMI VALLEY – With President George W. Bush at her side, former first lady Nancy Reagan turned to the crowd Friday and waved, then climbed aboard Air Force One for the first time since her husband left office. The gleaming Boeing 707 remained stationary, mounted above the cheering throng, the star of a spectacular new exhibit dedicated by Bush, his wife and Mrs. Reagan at the Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. To the strains of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Symphony’s “The U.S. Air Force” (“Off we go, into the wild blue yonder …”), the trio led an entourage that toured the pavilion, which opens to the public Monday. “There’s no more fitting place for it to be,” said Reagan fan Corrine Clement of Las Vegas, Nev., one of about 750 invited guests. “It’s an aircraft as big as the man himself.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Friday’s ceremony was dampened by a heavy blanket of fog that shrouded the surrounding mountains and spoiled the vista from the pavilion. In fact, Bush had to travel from West Los Angeles by motorcade rather than helicopter because of the weather. But the day was a triumph, with Bush speaking of Reagan’s trip aboard the plane to Berlin, where he challenged Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987 to tear down the wall. The aircraft took Richard Nixon to the Middle East and Gerald Ford to the Far East, traveling a total of 445 missions for seven presidents over three decades. “I am proud to stand in this magnificent pavilion that is now home to a celebrated symbol of democracy and freedom,” Bush said. “You know, across this nation, Americans can visit many great memorials to the cause of liberty – from a statue in a busy harbor whose arm carries high the flame of freedom, to a quiet field in Arlington filled with rows of white tombstones, to a mountainside in the heartland carved with the images of America’s great leaders. Each evokes a sense of awe and wonder. “But none can soar at more than 500 miles an hour, carrying freedom’s message across oceans and continents.” Nancy Reagan, wearing a light-brown suit, was radiant, sharing some memories aboard the plane her husband boarded for 211 journeys, logging more than 631,000 miles – more than any other president before him. She thanked the pilots and crew members who celebrated a reunion at the dedication. “This achievement is yours as well,” she said. Lt. Col. Steve Chealander, Reagan’s military aide, said stepping aboard the plane, known by its tail number, 27000, was “very nostalgic.” “It smelled the same, it looked the same,” he said. “It was awesome.” The $31 million, three-story, 87,000-square-foot pavilion, an architectural marvel, sets the plane as if it’s in flight. The 707 faces a huge glass window overlooking the mountains of western Simi Valley. The exhibit also includes a Marine One helicopter, the president’s motorcade and an Irish pub Reagan visited. The “flying White House” is filled with artifacts from the Reagan years, 1980-88, including the former first couple’s flight jackets, handwritten letters and the president’s favorite jelly beans. “President Reagan would be very thrilled with this because it’s the fulfillment of a dream,” Chealander said. “He feels this should be shared with everybody because this is their White House, their presidency. “It could not be better. It looks like it’s taking off, fully restored in its original form. Everything you see inside is authentic.” Visitors enter the plane where seven presidents who used it as Air Force One boarded, a door marked on both sides with the presidential seal. The pavilion marks “the realization of Ronnie’s dream,” Mrs. Reagan said. “As visitors climb the stairs to the door of this airplane, I hope they will feel as Ronnie and I did every time we arrived on foreign soil in faraway countries or returned safely home to American shores – grateful for our many blessings.” The 707 served presidents from Nixon to Clinton, the latter using it as a backup to the Air Force One ordered by Reagan. Nancy Reagan told the crowd that the couple’s last trip aboard came after Reagan left office in January 1989, and the couple headed home to California. “I can still see Ronnie, peering out the window in our cabin as he watched Washington disappear against the landscape,” Mrs. Reagan said. “It was overwhelming,” said Lee F. Simmons, a steward on two planes used as Air Force One, serving presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford. Presidential aircraft are only dubbed Air Force One when the president is aboard. Attending the dedication were Reagan family friend Merv Griffin, former California Gov. Pete Wilson and wife Gayle, and members of the state’s Republican congressional delegation, including Elton R. Gallegly, R-Thousand Oaks. Simi Valley Mayor Paul Miller said Friday’s ceremony was a great tribute to one of America’s greatest presidents. “This is a great symbol of his legacy, this airplane,” he said. “I’m so excited.” Fred Ryan, chairman of the board of trustees for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Foundation, said the exhibit is more than a retired aircraft. “The purpose of this new museum is not history called past, but to inspire future generations of American leaders,” he said. “It’s a symbol of American strength, and the awesome, global responsibility of the president of the United States.” The Ronald Reagan Foundation raised the $31 million through private donations. The fundraising efforts were completed earlier this week with a $10 million donation from Boone Pickens, a Texas oil and gas executive.
